Sri Lanka has picked fast bowler Dilhara Fernando for the T20 series against India, which begins on February 9th.

Dilhara last played for Sri Lanka in mid-2012. Leg-spinnning all-rounder Seekkuge Prasanna also makes a comeback.

T20 captain Lasith Malinga misses out due to injury, as does all-rounder Angelo Mathews, seamer Nuwan Kulasekara, and left-arm spinner Rangana Herath.

Dinesh Chandimal leads the side in Malinga's stead.

Asela Gunaratne, who bats in the middle order and bowls offspin for Sri Lanka Army, and Kasun Rajitha, the Badureliya Sports Club seamer, are the only uncapped members of the squad that will visit India.

Middle order batsman Dasun Shanaka, who played one T20 international last year, keeps his spot after his record-setting run in domestic T20.
